I had my follow up 3 month scans and they showed NED. I’m not sure how I feel about this because I have a very sore chest pain that comes and goes. I told my doctor about it and he says not to worry. My scans came in fine but this chest pain feels so strange. It feels sore and today it’s starting to feel a little sharp. I do notice it gets bad when I drink coffee but I don’t think that’s what’s causing it. My scans showed that I have two lung nodules (I think that’s what they’re called lol) but they didn’t react to chemo and they’ve never changed size and have been there forever. They told me everyone has them and they’re not cancer. So basically they’re telling me that I’m doing amazing so far but I can’t enjoy it because I’m so paranoid about this sore chest pain. My doctor asked me if it has affected my breathing or if I’m coughing and I’m not so my doctor isn’t really taking these pains serious since on top of that my scans look fine. Anyone else have an experience like this?
For the record, I had a 7 cm synovial sarcoma tumor eating into my skull, neck and spine. It was removed with no clear margins because it was a very dangerous surgery. They got out about 90% and before my second round of chemo it showed the cancer was dead. I also did 37 radiation treatments. I’m with UCLA and they believe that there’s a good chance it may never come back. They do see a spot but the ucla board agrees it’s scar tissue from surgery. I’ve had 3 scans since sept all if which are great. I finished treatment in dec. I really don’t know what to think. Anyone have a case similar to this?
